Centre for Japan Pre-Entry Tuberculosis Screening (JPETS) Quality Assessment was established in April 2020, to assist the Ministry of Health, Welfare and Labour, Japan, in its operation of Japan’s pre-entry tuberculosis(TB) screening programme. Our Mission is to provide technical support and recommendations based on long-established expertise in TB control both in and outside Japan, and contribute to delivering high-quality pre-entry TB screening for people travelling to Japan.Our main roles are threefold:
Japan has introduced the pre-entry TB screening in 2020, as one of the core components of its national TB control programme. It is intended to identify active TB and requests those who wish to stay in Japan for over 3 months as mid- or long-term residents as prescribed in Article 19-3 of the Immigration Control and Refugee Recognition Act, from the following countries: China, the Philippines, Vietnam, Indonesia, Myanmar, and Nepal, to undergo TB screening and be issued a TB Screening Clearance Certificate prior to travelling to Japan.
This programme has not started yet as of August, 2022. We will announce here before starts.
